    Trying to characterize Lula and Dilma as "corporate goons" doesn't pass muster, you have to admit.  Seriously, the woman is a communist and he's a union leader and both considerably to the left of anything we have in the states.  She has gone after endemic corruption in some aggressive and unprecedented ways.  Both have thumbed their noses at the IMF and the Washington consensus and ignored austerity prophets to create social programs. Brazil has been engaged in this change at the highest levels for a deacade now at least.     So, against that background your characterization a seem very far off to say people are now "awoken" to rise against the plutocracy.   You are a little behind the times on that one

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion. An activist seeks to change opinion.
